This season’s concerts will give us the opportunity to feature the recipients of the 2019 CSO Young Musician Award. Cellist Taylor Vyskocil will perform Kol Nidre by Max Bruch at our fall concert on Saturday November 2, 2019. The Kol Nidre is the holiest prayer in the Jewish celebration of Yom Kippur. As a piece of atonement, it will contrast with the rest of the program’s repertoire of music inspired by love (gained and lost).
On December 7, Northland College’s performance ensembles will combine for their second annual Holiday Festival of Music. Christine Hulmer and Matthew Nemec will bring their choirs together for the combined choir and orchestra piece Ecce Novum by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. As well, CSO Young Musician Award recipient, clarinetist Tyler Thornton will perform the first movement of the Carl van Weber Concerto No. 1. May this concert, performed by Northland College choirs, bands, and the CSO, ignite your holiday season.
When we think of Classical music, we’re apt to think of the Three B’s – Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms, but there’s a whole musical world out there of under-represented composers. Although not firm at this point, under consideration is the music of Minneapolis composer Libby Larsen and a commission with Duluth composer Wendy Durrwachter. Please stay tuned and join us on Saturday, April 4, 2020 for Music of Women Composers.
